The United Village Inc. is excited to launch our G.A.U.G.E. (Grow As U Go Enrichment) Referral Program on October 16, 2023! This 6-month Enrichment Program provides resources, opportunities and love for those children that many have left behind. We address child safety and equip our youth with conflict resolution and alternative to violence techniques. We have partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide Mentors to each child, the Parent Coalition for Bully Prevention and Mental Health, Triple P, local Mental Health Specialists, and many more to ensure ALL kids, regardless of their status, are receiving an empowering experience and opportunities to thrive! Through these partnerships we are able to provide mental health treatment, advocacy for parents, academic excellence, and personal and professional development. Register your child today!
